6 Benefits of Green Tea

Green Tea has been around for a long time. In fact, it was originally found in China around 600~900 AD. Only recently, has green tea been found to have many health benefits.

From stress relief to cleansing, tea, in general, has many benefits.

Benefits

1. Lower risk of heart diseases

According to reviews of many studies done in 2013, green tea has been shown to improve blood flow and lower cholesterol. It prevents a range of heart-related issues.

2. Better memory

What’s good for the heart is usually also good for the brain. In a Swiss study, MRIs showed that people who drank green tea had more working memory in their brains. Green Tea has also been shown to prevent the formation of tau plaques which is linked to Alzheimer’s.

3. How about Weight Loss? 

Sadly, no “magical” food or drink can help shed off some pounds. However, green tea can be used as a substitute to sugary drinks to cut down calories. Next time, ditch that soda for one or two cups of green tea!

4.Brighter Smile

Japanese researchers found that green tea changes the pH in your mouth to prevent cavities.

5. Prevents Aging

Since green tea has antioxidant properties, it is known to be good for anti-aging and anti-wrinkle.

6.Relaxing

Lastly, green tea has relaxing properties. A natural stress-relief chemical called theanine has a great calming effect.
